I started this blanket in April or May as a Vintage Vertical Stripe but I wasn't feeling the Love so I tucked it away for the Summer. =) The beginning of August I decided it must be Frogged!! Abigail and I spent a morning unraveling each row and carefully rolling all that yarn into neat little balls to be used on another project.
One of my favorite blogs is Signed with an Owl and Kate has a wonderful tutorial for this Circle in a Square block. Three weeks of hooking and the blanket is D.O.N.E. I've never made a blanket so fast and I am so happy-happy-happy!!!!
The border is my favorite part!
Oh my ... isn't it BeAuTiFuL????? I made this for a Very Special Person's Birthday Present. Alas, that is not until December but I am afraid if I keep it in my house much longer I will not be able to part with it. So I will wrap it up in plastic, shove it into a Flat Mailer Box and send it to her this afternoon. =)
Now for all the Important Details. =)
YARN - Stylecraft Special DK in 13 different colors. I bought all the Lucy colors from Deramores and used those for this blanket.
HOOK - Susan Bates #7 (4.5mm)
PATTERN - Squaring the Big Circle by Kate @ Signed with an Owl
The color sequence for each block was completely random. I kept the project in a big LL Bean tote bag and would close my eyes, stick my hand in, and pull out the next color for the following round.
The border is 9 rows of granny trebles followed by a row of simple scallops.
